Positions:
I do not have any openings at the moment. Stay tuned.

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Engineering at Hacettepe University . Before joining the department, I had been working as a control system design engineer at ASELSAN Inc. for 10 years. I received my Ph.D. and M.Sc. degrees from the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at TOBB University of Economics and Technology in 2019 and 2015 respectively. I received my B.Sc degree from the Istanbul Technical University in 2010.

Research Interests

robust control, disturbance observer-based control, nonlinear control, 
switched systems and control, flight control systems, motion control systems and swarm systems
